Awhile back I was asked to provide a video to be used in Barrel Horse Heaven’s E-mag. I chose to do the video on stretching, which I think is very important in keeping your horse feeling good and performing at the top of their game. It also comes in handy when you might be in a position that doesn’t allow you to warm your horse up very good before a run (think winter rodeos where all there is is blacktop and ice). Further, it might help you catch a problem before it comes worse. If you stretch your horse on a regular basis you will get a good feel for what is normal and not normal for your horse.
I hope you enjoy Stretching 101!
